"There is no reason to produce wimpy little pink wines with no varietal character." That's what David Page, co-owner of Shinn Estate, said when I asked him about his 2006 Rosé.And, boy, is it different from most every other Long Island rosé I've tasted this summer. It's a much richer, bolder wine. Furthermore, rosé isn't an afterthought at Shinn. They have a particular lot, of a particular clone of Merlot, that they devote to their rosé every year.Page is right, this strawberry and watermelon-scented wine is far from wimpy. It's medium bodied and much rounder and fuller on the palate - but still balanced with gentle acidity and even a little tannic structure. There is a faint buttery note too, although malolactic fermentation was strictly avoided. For me, it's almost too bold, but it's still plenty fresh, refreshing and versatile. Page, a professional chef, recommends it with "everything from lobster rolls on the beach to charred steaks in the backyard." Sounds like the perfect wine for a North Fork summer.
